I have an 8800GTS and it fits in a regular Mid-tower ATX case... but I did have to move one of the hard drives to keep the power from bending too much.

The GTX... a full tower should work as long as you have the front room and if needed, move the hard drive cage.

The cm stacker is the ultimate full tower to fix 8800s.

Have you tried measuring inside your case to see if they will fit?

That Coolermaster case looks to have gotten quite alot of negative feedback.... not my style of case, and IMO, no need for so many 120mm fan holders.
